The Chicago-based Henhouse Prowlers are not the average bluegrass band, and not just because they come from Chicago, the unassuming home of the landmark Old Town School of Folk Music. They’ve of course toured the US and Europe, but more recently have made four separate State Department–supported trips to sub-Saharan Africa; for their second trip, to Nigeria, Prowlers co-founder Ben Wright wanted to bring a version of a local hit—“Chop My Money.” During their performance at the US Embassy, the original artist even got on stage to sing with them, and the song has since been featured on their most recent CD, Still on that Ride. The Henhouse Prowlers are making their Ravinia debut, sharing their wide range of tight arrangements and original songwriting, “a saucy combination of old-timey string-band pluckiness and Southern-fried tales of woe and scandal” (The Gazette, Iowa).
